The return is no longer under wraps as WWE confirmed John Morrison has signed with the company. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The news was confirmed by Ryan Satin on WWE Backstage. News of Morrison returning to WWE was first reported in September by Mike Johnson of PWInsider. However, Morrison was quick to take to Twitter to seemingly deny the report, saying, "Thanks for the heads up @PWInsidercom -- please lemme know when I’m signed with AEW- or ROH"
It has not been confirmed as to which brand Morrison will be apart of.
Morrison, a former three-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, five-time Tag Team Champion, and ECW Champion, spent nine years in WWE before leaving in 2011. He had successful runs in IMPACT Wrestling and Lucha Underground, holding the World Title in both companies, during his time away from WWE. He finished up with IMPACT in July.
It is unknown when Morrison will return to WWE television.
